Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds House for Passing Save Our Gas Stoves Act
Atlanta, GA – Today, the US House passed the Save Our Gas Stoves Act. This bill prohibits the Secretary of Energy from implementing the proposed rule, “Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Consumer Conventional Cooking Products.” In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:
“We thank the House Members who voted for the Save Our Gas Stoves Act. The Biden administration’s ‘green agenda,’ which includes banning gas stoves, is an outrageous left-wing assault on everyday American life. Incandescent lightbulbs, for example, are on the verge of extinction, thanks to a Biden rule taking effect July 1 that will raise their cost and make their manufacture prohibitively expensive. Washing machines and air conditioners are also on the Biden hit list – all to placate environment radicals. The House did its job today, but we need to sustain a grassroots campaign to hold the administration accountable.
“Tea Party Patriots Action is leading this fight. Shortly after Consumer Product Safety Commissioner Richard Trumka, Jr. proposed a gas stove ban, TPPA launched a ‘Call to Action’ urging our members and supporters to leave comments opposing new regulations. We helped generate 4,448 comments. This represented almost half the comments left for the commission. We won’t quit until gas stoves and other staples of everyday American life are safe from government overreach.”
